In Topic: Charleston People. Little help

Only place I found open for Sunday morning coffee and breakfast was by the yacht club.  Cru Cafe has a largish private room upstairs, and their food is excellent. 


Name of that place is The Marina Variety Store. It is above Salty Mikes. Best breakfast joint in Charleston for hours, quick service, good food. There is a reason that locals eat there.

 

And they have a separate room that can be closed off for a private gathering. Just call ahead and give them fair warning. Fleet Landing has made a nice comeback and could accommodate your crowd.

Radiohead, Oasis, Blur... Pretty much everything from that era until now.

 

Bruce Springsteen haters have obviously never seen him live...

 

Eagles are very good musicians playing very good songs, hardly overrated,

 

I think some of you are mistaking "overrated" with "I don't like it"

I hate Springsteen, why would i want to see him live... dead maybe.

That's what cancelled off shore racing at CRW a few weeks ago.

My thought is to put the big boats in the middle of the harbor. We race there on W/L's a lot already.  Move a smaller OD fleet to the Wando or even on the JIYC side of the Ashley.  No commercial traffic over there, just the ICW.

What is a "cap washer"? What exactly failed?   A dime sized cup shaped washer that holds the shroud the in the fitting at the spreader. I brought rig home to Charleston Spar here in Charlotte. We didn't cut anything away They went over it and the only thing missing was the cap washer no other failed of missing parts. Just going off of what the rig builder said 
You had a bad injector and replaced the engine?  Injector failed and flooded the cylinder with fuel washing out all the lubricants.  Called "Coking"  That seized up/locked the cylinder and ruined the block.  I had three people look at;  Volvo, my yard/mechanic and my truck mechanic here at home.  (I own a few big rigs)

 

But your friend is making it sound like she was beat to crap. No you are... 

Sorry about your health issues. Thanks
What hull number and what is the asking price? #76.  Not sure yet. She's good as new now!   
OR where is she listed so you don't get pummeled for not buying an ad.  I pulled the listing when the engine seized (Nov '15) per advice from my broker. 

 

I may not relist and just buy an ad here.  FSBO.  The market sucks,  not my boat.
